London – At Brixton’s Wishbone, designed by interior architects Shed, the craze for elevating child-friendly fast food dishes to new levels of refinement is extending to fried chicken.

The staple is receiving the gourmet treatment, courtesy of chefs William Leigh and Scott Collins of MEATLiquor, the carnivore-friendly West End restaurant we profiled in 2011.

Wishbone serves free-range birds only, fried and seasoned according to recipes from around the world. The extensive cocktail menu should convince any sceptical grown-ups that the restaurant is designed with them in mind.

Nostalgic for childhood foods, but with grown-up palettes, consumers are increasingly opting for Gourmet Junk.
